“I am the problem” That small phrase has been at the center of many hours of conversations with our friends here in Konomala lately. Not just because they are wrestling with the reality of their own hearts … but because we’re wrestling with the exact same thing! It’s not easy to take an honest look … More 2 Cor 4:16 – dying but renewed
“Leave Konomala immediately. Get to a doctor as soon as possible” Those are the most dreaded words that we can imagine hearing. Just the other day we were talking about how thankful we are that God has protected our whole team from having any medical emergencies here in Konomala.

In the big picture this whole language thing went pretty quick, but the days sure were long. Thousands of hours after we started, we can fluently speak … More on your mark, get set
Happy thanksgiving, friends! We’re in the fall season here in PNG too. It’s hot, muggy, sometimes rains, sometimes there’s a breeze, and we pretty much break a full sweat walking across the yard … feels just like home.

Truck Update: The entire cost has been met! We’ve lost count of how many times God has provided through our amazing friends, family, and co-workers. Thank you so much to all of you who generously gave to help our team purchase a more reliable truck. Both of our families are awed and humbled by the … More Thank You!

Background: Before we moved to PNG, we had always pictured ourselves living on an island where we needed to have a boat in order to get to a supply town. For whatever reason we never … More Konomala Team Truck
